This is specific to our AT&T model, though i'm sure they are universal across all S5 models. Filter on the left side for the chargers.

Wireless Charging Pad mini $39.99

Wireless Charging Pad $59.99

Galaxy S 5 Spare Battery Charging System $49.99

Galaxy S 5 Wireless Charging Cover, White $29.99 (Also available in Black it says)

Most important thing of course we ALL want to know with these Qi-charging covers are: "The Wireless Battery Cover was designed by Samsung to seamlessly match the look and feel of your Galaxy S 5 ensuring that your phone maintains its original style and slim profile. In addition, Samsung has incorporated sealing rubber into the battery cover to retain the Galaxy S 5ís water resistance."

Please sticky this at least for the first quarter as it is a list of the Official products.

Im hoping this little line in their description means that the wireless back wont add too much to the phone to prevent the use of normal cases.

We need to know if it adds bulk and if standard cases can be used. I have a QI charging pad that I use with an insert in my S3. I'm guessing my charging pad will work with this back?

Wonder if they will have any price drops or a coupon code to score these cheaper. I might have to go w/the insert if the covers add bulk.

True. The nillkin one I installed on my s4 created a pretty noticeable bulge with the battery cover

Damn, didn't think of that. I hope some company takes that into consideration. Sammy should have made wireless charging standard on this phone but it looks like they want to make more off of accessories.
